We asked Mizuka Ueno about the highlights of "Jewels from MIZUKA II"!

上野水香さんに『Jewels from MIZUKA Ⅱ(ジュエルズ フロム ミズカ Ⅱ)』の見どころを伺いました!

"Jewels from MIZUKA II", a performance produced by Mizuka Ueno, which was first planned in 2014 and was very well received. The second one will be realized!
Japanese dancers who are active both in Japan and overseas, including world-famous star dancers Vladimir Malahoff and Marcelo Gomes, gather at the Kanagawa Kenmin Hall in response to Mr. Ueno's call. It will deliver a wonderful one-night-only stage.
Mr. Ueno, who is overwhelmingly popular as a top dancer representing Japan, is from Kanagawa prefecture. It has a deep connection with the Kenmin Hall, and this year alone, many appearances have been made, such as "Petipa's 200th Anniversary Gala" and "Fantastic Gala Concert" at the end of the year.
We asked Mr. Ueno, who says, "The Kenmin Hall is a stage that I have a lot of love for," about the highlights of this production performance!

What made you want to not only dance but also produce performances?

I have loved dancing since I was a child and have danced various works in various environments. When the thoughts of "I want to dance this" and "I want to play that" emerge in me, I was invited to a gala performance such as "Malakhov & Friends" and "Ruguri and Shining Friends". I think it was a wonderful experience.
The gala performance is more like a festival, and it has a unique atmosphere that is different from the whole curtain. While accumulating such experiences, I would like to see my friends and develop ideas such as "What if he danced that role" and "I'm sure it would be nice if she danced that", and I would like to produce my own gala performance. I came to think so.

The first production performance was very popular

Thank you. last time, Mainly, I was asked by my friends who are always dancing together in the ballet company, but it was impressive that they showed a different expression and danced lively and happily. did. They also said "I had a lot of fun" and "I definitely want to do it again", and I was happy that everyone, not just me, was pleased.

What is the fun of being produced by yourself?

I get the feeling that I'm doing it on my own, and I feel like I'm alive!
Works that leave an impression of "I want to dance again" during my career, and works that I have long admired and wish "I want an opportunity to dance". I think it is my gala performance that collects and shows off the small dreams that have been accumulated in this way.

Please tell me the highlight of this time

We have a wide variety of works from classic to modern. Also, there is a wide variety of guests, including Malakhov, who always invited me to the gala performance, so I'm really looking forward to it.
Even if you are active in the same country, you rarely have the opportunity to be on the same stage as a dancer from another company. I'm sure there is something we can feel about being on the stage with them.

What is your recommended work? ng>

Of course it's all!
The first thing I would like to talk about about dancing is "Libertango". Until now, I have danced with Naoki Takagishi and Dan Tsukamoto, who choreographed this work, and have been well received, but this time I will dance with Gomes. When I came to Japan at the "World Ballet Festival" in August, I was surprised because he gave me two replies, "I also wanted to dance with Mizuka." (smile). I've been with Gomes several times at gala performances, but it's my first time to partner with him, so I'm thrilled.
And "Bolero" choreographed by Roland Petit. Béjart's choreographed "Bolero" has danced dozens of times around the world, but this is the first time for the Petit version. It was a long time ago, but Petit once said, "I want to make Mizuka dance," but I didn't have a chance. This is my chance to finally come around, so I'm really looking forward to it with Mr. Aramoto who dances with me. It's completely different from the Bejar version, but it's a charming work with an esprit like Petit.

In classics you can dance "pirates"

yes. I've been co-starring with Mr. Akimoto many times, but I'm looking forward to this as it's my first time with Mr. Akimoto. They said "I want to dance someday" to each other, so this is also one of the "small dreams".
I think the important thing is to realize the accumulation of my dreams in a way that makes our customers happy. We are preparing for a wonderful experience for the dancers who will be performing and, of course, for the customers who come to see us.
Please look forward to it!
